An Atlanta Sensation.
A Womau Las the City in an
Some one has been sending
postal cards through the mail to
citizens of Atlanta, of which
the Herald says:
The cards written to Judge
Hopkins are' stated by him to
be obscene and daring beyond
measure, and to attack infa
mously the highest circles of
our Atlanta society. Over one
hundred of our leading citizens,
male and female, are beslimed
by the foul and secret slander-
mi t i i r
The Judge Wisely refuses
tClet the cards be read in or
der that no publicity may be
given to the scandals.
As a specimen of the feeling
we may state that the highest
officer of the State said that a
shot gun would be the proper
arbiter of the matter.
Since writing the aboVe some
terrible facts have come to light
implicating the wife of a well
known merchant. AVe suppress
the names for the present, and
give the facts.
One was addressed to a wor
thy lady of , on the Georgia
railroad, charging her with in
trigue with a prominent gentle
man in Atlanta, giving time and
place. This lady had a month
or two ago received a letter from
Llli; UJ.ll.UUlll D Mill-, VUlll jIJJq
her with slights on a festive oc
casion, and saying she would
be revenged. A comparison of
the two letters showed that the
handwriting was the same.
The jady came to Atlanta
yesterday, and employed a law
yer to prosecute the matter.
The merchant was sent for and
the suspicion against his wife
told to him. He said if the
charge was true he would repu
Among the testimon7 against
the lady charged, is the state
ment of a leading business
man who received one of the
cards, who recognizes the hand
writing, and who .says the
merchant's wife told him a week
or two ago that she had received
some slights and meant to rev
olutionize society in Atlanta
We have not space to give
all the evidence against the un
fortunate lady. It is a terribly
conclusive array of circumstan
ces. There is a deep feeling a
gainst her. A more painful
case never happened. What is
to be the end remains to be seen.
As it now stands, the city, is
absolutely horror-stricken at the
most unnatural matter.
Nearly four hundred addi
tional post offices have, just been
established, distributed over all
parts of the country.
Parties are warned against
sending money in letters unless
the same are registered. The
experience of the Postoffice De
partment is, that an expert in
handling letters can tell in a
moment whether money is con
tained in them.
Advices received by the
Comptroller of the Currency
show that there are many par
ties desiring to start national
banks under the new currency
law, who are waiting, before
taking the step, for Government
bonds to fall in price, so that
they will not be compelled to
pay so heavily for their bonds to
be deposited as security for their
The entire police force of Jef
ferson, Texas, was arraigned be
fore the Jtfayor, recently, on the
charge of vagrancy. The charge
was preferred by the families
of the policemen, who stated
that the parties under charge
had no visible meails of support,
as they had received but twelve
dollars from the city in the last
five months. Case postponed.
St. Louis is not inclined -o al
low the Hub to out shine it in
anything. A local journal says :
"Bostou claims to have a dia
mond ring which once belonged
to Sir Isaac Xewton. That is
nothing; St. Louis has the lead
pencil with which Noah check

to the ark,"
Joel Sloper's Opinion of
It is a general impression that
the comet is on a pleasure trip,
and people seem to think that
comets are planetary bummers
that go swinging round their
erratic orbits just for the fun of
the thing. Now I stood on

night and made a close exami

The question is certainly o
pen for argument, and perhaps
some of our scientific men who
believe comets to be more use
ful than ornamental will, give
us their opinions. .
A Fast Train.
The "newspaper train" be
tween Newr York, and Philadel
phia will, sooner or later, fur
nish materials for a first-class
horror. Every morning it leaves
New York and runs at a higher
rate of speed than has hitherto
been attained on this continent.
Last Monday it left Jersey City
half an hour late, and caught
up before reaching Trenton,
making fifty-seven miles in fifty
nine minutes. This, however,
was not the fastest time. Near
New Brunswick five miles of
the road were run in three and
a half minutes, or at the . rate
of eighty-six miles an hour.
This train was placed on the
road for the purpose of carry
ing the New Yrork morning
papers to Philadelphia, so that
tkey could be distributed as
early as the Philadelphia jour
nals. The engineer and others
employed . eon th train have
signed a paper declaring that
they will not hold the road re
sponsible for damages in case of
accident. Not contented with
simply carrying the mails, pas
senger coaches have been at
tached, making it a regular pas-
inger tram. In Lngland the
rate of a mile per minute is not
considered excessive; there the
roads are constructed with a
special reference to fast run
ning, and the road beds have
a solidity and firmness une-
qualed on this side of the At

The Old Story of Niagara
The editor of the Presbyteri
an Banner being on a ramble
last week, visited Niagara,- and
thus relates his experience at a
"The intolerable nuisance of
Niagara is its great hotels.
Two of us arrived at the station
about half past 12 o'clock, p.m.,
gave the check for our trunk to
the man representing one of
them and walked to that estab
lishment, about one-eighth of
a mile distant. The llext day,
when we went to the desk to
pay our bill to the dignified par
ty who presides there, we found
a charge of one dollar and fifty
cents for an 'omnibus' ride. We
told him we had not enjoyed
the luxury of a ride in that in
stitution, and did hot propose to
do so. Putting on a courtly
smile, he replied, 'Have you not
a trunk?' We acknowledged
ourselves guilty of that offense.
Oh, then,' said he, 'you see how
it is; we charge, every one who
comes to this house with a trunk
just as much for bringing and
taking away his trunk as if he
rode in our omnibus.' 'Then,'
said we, 'there are two of us,
and you charge for one trunk
just the same as if both of us
had ridden in your vehicle ; or,
in other words, you compel
guststo ride;' to all of which
he assented. In plain words we
told him that such conduct was
exactly the reverse of honest,
and that a hotel that would act
in this way was defrauding the
public. But so accustomed is
he to hear such talk many times
every day that he did not give
the least evidence of annoy
ance. The owners of hacks
give as one reason for their high
charges, that they are compelled
to pay a certain percentage to
the clerks of this house or fail
to get employment."
The Cost of Living in Ar
izona. Arizona is a moderately cheap
country to live in; that is, cheap
as to style and quantity. Flour
is only $20, bacon 20 cents per
pound, ham 32 cents, beans 10
cents per pound, conee su-
gar.35 cents,beef 30 cents, pork
35 cents, mutton 15 cents, ven
ison and antelope 20 cents, po
tatoes 5 cents per pound, beets,
turnips, onions and cabbage, 5
cents per pound; lumber, 60
per M. Board in the worst-
kind of hotels, is only 10 to
$12 per week, with hay bed
gratis. But then wages are
fair. Blacksmiths get 5 per
day and board; carpenters, 3
and board; cooks, $30 per
month and board; herders, $50
to $G0 per month, board inclu
ded; common laborers, $1. So
your readers see we go on a
scale commensurate with the
grandeur of our country.

The Plow ana the Press.
We envy not the princely man.
In city or in town.
Who wonders whether pumpkin vines
Turu up the hill or down.
We care not lor his marble halls,
Nor yet his heaps of gold;
We would not own his sordid heart
For all his wealth twice told.
We are the favored ones of earth,
We breathe pure air each morn,
We sow, we resp the golden grain,
We gather in the corn.
We toil, we live on what we earn,
And more than this we do:
We hear of starving millions round,
And gladly feed them too.
The lawyer lives on princely fees,
Yet drags a weary life;
lie never knows a peaceful hour,
His atmosphere is strife.
The merchant thumbs his yard-stick o'er-
Grows haggard at his toil
lie's nflt the man God meant him'for,
Why don't he till tho soil?
The doctor plods through storm and rain,
Plods at his patient's will;
When dead and gone he plods again .
To get his lengthy bill.
The printer bless his noble soul !
He grasps tho mighty earth,
And stamps it oa our weekly sheet
To cheer the laborer's hearth.
We sing the honor of the Plow,
And honor to tho Press,
Two noble instruments of toil,
Each with a power to bless;
The bone, the nerve of this fast age
True wealth of human kind
One. tiils the ever faith'ul earth,
The other tills the mind.
English Capital Flowing
. into the South.
Since several of the Southern
States have exempted capital
invested in the development of
their internal resources from
taxation, Northern and for
eign capital has begun to find
profitable investment there.
Many companies have been
formed to develop the rich
fields of South Carolina, the
forests of Florida and Georgia,
and to manufacture the raw cot
ton adjacent to the plantations.
ThcEnglish cooperative associa
tions, we learn from our exchan-
es, are looking southward for
fields of profitable investment,
and one company of English co
operative rich planters, with a
capital of two million dollars,
will soon begin operations near
Charleston. The Augusta Con
stitutionalist, commenting upon
these facts, very pertinently re
marks: "Some anxiety was re
cently expressed to get an itin
erant newspaper excursion par
ty to come here and be made
much of. The parties who were
so eager to capture and entertain
tlicse festive quill drivers had a
great deal better bestir them
selves to attract sober and well-to-do
Englishmen, who have
money to spend."
Simon Sturges, of Allentown.
Pennsylvania, died recently at
the age oi seventy-nine. He
had been married four times, the
wedding having been, on his
fortieth, fiftieth, sixtieth and
seventieth hirthdavs. His last
wife was dead, too, and it is
likely that Mr.Sturges had lived
another year he would have cel
ebrated his eightieth birthday
in the accustomed style, because
the local paper says he was a
very methodical old man.

Butler's Joke on Foster.
From a Washington Letter.
The brightest thing said for
many a day a scintidation of
genuine wit quick, brief and ap
posite, came lrom Butler at the
close of his greit spjech recently.
The letort deserved a better fate
than it received at the hands of
thettupid reporter, who garbled it
so clumsily that there was no point
left. Closing hi3 speech, Mr. B it
ler commented with unsparing se
verityand he is the master of
inveclive on the action of the
ways and means committee in re
lation to the Phelps, Djdge & Co
aqse. The peroration was elo
quent, and before the speaker had
time to resuin.i his seat, Foster, ot
Ohio, (member of that Committee)
who had been personally alluded
to, arose and said in a loud voice,
"Let us pray !" It raised a laugh ;
but without an instant's hesita
tton,"01d Cockeye," as Foster in
aolently called hii antagonist,
turned to the stenographers, and
said, "Spell it with an e." Such
a storm of applause followed that
drowned in the confusion.

Bill Crutchfield's Blow.
A Centre Shot.
How He Worried the Civil Rigbts
There was never a sharper blow
delivered than that given Ben But
ler and his family and friends of
the Eastern aristocracy by the
member of Congress iu the Chat
tanooga district. The jolly, ner
vous mountaineer was seemingly
the moat ardent friend of the Civ
il Rights Bill. He sought, at all
times, to force a vote upon the
measure, lie tortured poor Alay
nard most cruelly. Maynard nev
er voted against Massachusetts in
his life. Nominally, a mernler
from Tennessee, he has faithfully
served his eastern constituent.
and Maynard, like Barbour Lewis,
wa's modtanxious to prevent a vote.
He often endeavored to silence the
original,impuldive, untamed mem
ber from Chattanoog3, but always
in vain. JNever was Mayuarus
impatience so violent us when
Crutchfield rose in his place, and
to the utter dismay of Butler and
Maynard aud Lewis, and to the
confusion of Radicalism in the
House, said "Mr. Speaker I
have a neat little amendment,
which I think absolutely necessary
to the perfection of the Civil
Rights Bill. I will read it, Mr.
Speaker, and move its adoption."
It was a clap of thunder from a
clear eky, and the whole House
listened while Crutchfield, in a
clear voice, read as tollows :
"Sec. 3. Be it further enacted,
That any white lady refusing the
